  • Give Us Men

    This one is aimed at our disgusting members of paliament:

    "GOD, give us men! A time like this demands

    Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands;

    Men whom the lust of office does not kill;

    Men whom the spoils of office can not buy;

    Men who possess opinions and a will;

    Men who have honor; men who will not lie;

    Men who can stand before a demagogue

    And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking!

    Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog

    In public duty, and in private thinking;

    For while the rabble, with their thumb-worn creeds,

    Their large professions and their little deeds,

    Mingle in selfish strife, lo! Freedom weeps,

    Wrong rules the land and waiting Justice sleeps"

    Josiah Gilbert Holland
